really good

Fed 4, juicy with great flavour at an extraordinary price. But, like other reviewers I'd like to know the farming method, I'm sure waitrose can be trusted here but would be good to be sure.

freshness/funny taste

I do not think the chickens are not fresh. However, most of the time the chicken weigh only 1.5-1.7 kg- small to medium chicken. In my experience small chickens taste funny. Chickens weighing above 2kg taste better. I would like to know the feedbacks from other customers on this. Will be watching this space.

Cheat... Cook on the barbecue on a high heat for 15 minutes, then put in a preheated 200°C (400°F/Gas 6) oven for 20 minutes. Cook's Notes: To spatchcock a chicken yourself, sit the chicken breast-side down on a clean work surface. Using poultry shears or a good pair of kitchen scissors, cut along the centre back of the chicken, running from thigh to wing on each side and removing the backbone, from tail to neck. Open up the chicken and flatten by pushing down hard on the breastbone. Secure in position with metal skewers running from thigh to opposite wing.
